    Talking Some flowering plants at MARDI - Cameron Highlands

    I have mentioned the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute in the Cameron Highlands ,where I spent my recent holidays. At this station there is a lot of research on the growing of temperate fruits and flowers to help our highland farmers.Here are some pictures of flowers that will be quite familiar to our friends in more temperate lands but are quite fascinating to our local tourists. The Cameron highlands has a booming cut-flower industry producing chrysanthemum, roses, carnations, lillies and even cymbidiums for the local market as well as for export.

    Pix #1 - MARDI Admin Building ( note: Pseudo-Tudor style architecture)
    Pix #2 - 'The English Cottage' one of two cottages for rent
    Pix #3 - Bed of roses - just been pruned to flower in 3 weeks in time for the Id-il Fitri Muslim festival after the fasting month of Ramadan
    PIX #4 - Bed of gerberas - another popular flower here.

    Reminds me so much of Baguio City and Benguet here in the Philippines, North of Manila which is also up in our highlands and with cool weather.

    Heard a lot of good things about Baguio City from friends who have visited the place. Must make it a point to visit it when I visit the Philippines.

    Hi Darren. The gloxinias come in a multitude of colours and seem to do well using the hydroponics or SH methods.
